Residential Recycling

How do I prevent windblown litter from my recycling bin or container?

 If possible, avoid putting recycling bins out on windy days and wait for your next pick-up. We will collect extra materials in bin or box no larger than SSC bins. If set out for collection, consider these suggestions:

Stacking bins – set singly on the ground. 

Tub-style bins – nest inside each other.

Recycling Toters® and Dumpsters – Close lids securely.

Cardboard – Flatten boxes, place on ground with a bin on top.
